Tesla cars can be bought with Bitcoin
In recent times, it’s become more common to actually use your cryptocurrency to buy goods and services and one such very sought-after goods are the Tesla car brands. With the volatility of value in Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies, there is no better time to consider cashing in on some real assets such as a Tesla electric car.
Elon does it again
One major breakthrough lies with Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk who is a major Bitcoin fan and has invested heavily into cryptocurrency. To be precise, about £1.1 billion worth of Bitcoin. This was one of the reasons we saw a sharp increase in Bitcoin’s value, by going to record levels.
To add to Elon Musk’s initial investment, Tesla will be running its own internal software to handle Bitcoin payments, which “operates Bitcoin nodes directly” as quoted by Elon Musk. In this instance, nodes are the computers and operating software that will be used to process all the Bitcoin transactions. To give extra peace of mind to those who want to see the ecosystem thrive, all Bitcoins paid to purchase a Tesla car will be retained as Bitcoin and not converted into any other currency.
How much deposit?
In the coming months, the facility to purchase Tesla cars in Europe and other countries will be rolled out, and it will only take a deposit of $100 (£72) to secure your new Tesla car. Be aware, due to Bitcoin’s current volatile price, it does make buying real-world goods pretty precarious. For example, if a refund is requested, it will be paid in either the exact amount of Bitcoin paid to begin with, but if the price of the Bitcoin rises before the refund is paid out, the customer could then lose out.
